We measured the anisotropic magnetization processes of copper metaborate CuB 2O 4 in detail. We propose an interpretation of the magnetization anomaly observed under the magnetic field applied perpendicular to the tetragonal axis, based on the field- and temperature-induced commensurate-to-incommensurate (C-IC) transition (Fréedericksz transition) accompanied by the chiral soliton lattice formation.
